teacherontwowheels My brother is a member of couchsurfing and they were staying at his place. They payed a trip with Adrenaline Bolivia to Coroico and i asked the owner to allow me to be their guide. I could not believe this would change my view of touring cyclist. Here is a phot with me as his guide and a comment about the deathroad beatiful lecture!

panamerica.ch Das ich diese Liegeräder gesehen habe und unbedingt mit den Jugs was machen wollte geschah in einem Augenblick. Leider waren die verplant für die Deathroad… nicht mehr und nicht weniger als mit einem Freund von mir, also wurde ich als deren Führer angagiert… und es war cool.

6-7 from around the 20.04.09 till 24.04.09 Sven and Dorothea auf-radreise Über warmshowers melden sie sich die beiden und kommen direkt nach Hause. Ich leihe ihnen meine Räder und male eine Skizze, wie sie die “Todesstrasse” auf der schönsten Weise fahren können. Sie geniessen es total und dann gehen wir zusammen essen und am nächsten Tag bringen sie im Haus meiner Freundin Lusa ein Kuchen bei der noch nicht im Cafe gebacken wurde. Sie schreiben hier über mich und den indivuellen Plan. 4
22.04.09 Petra & Mathias biker2008.blogspot Wir treffen uns nur kurz im Cafe gegenüber von meinem. Wir waren damals in der Bauphase und ich liess die Arbeiter alleine um mich mit denen zu unterhalten. Im Blog von April liest man über deren Fahrt auf Chacaltaya. 0

The three helped us in the kitchen so much that Luisa misses them a lot.They stayed at the cafe when we startet runnig it. Sometimes we just let them work… while we were doing some paperwork.
Antoine at the end left his bycicle for good purposes since he did not want to take it with him to Peru and back to France.

The next day they came at night after their bycicle ride with friends to the ghost ride. She was sick and the next day they carried on 1
20 mandolina man This guy did not stay here but payed me a visit. A couple of days later i met him on the street and he told me that he had suffered a lot going from Sorata to Guanay…
Weeks later i read his comment on warmshowers, he does not make many comments about other fellow travellers or persons he visits, but that one was shocking, because it is not good.

21-22 um den 10.8.09 Bettina und Raphael gegenwind.ch.vu
Auf der Seite über Cuzco – Cochabamba
liest man :In La Paz konnten wir wieder einmal in den Genuss einer Casa de Ciclistas und Cristians Gastfreundschaft kommen. Cristian, ein studierter Physiker und nun (Internet-)Cafébesitzer hat etliche Jahre in Deutschland verbracht und besonders Raphael genoss es, Deutsch reden zu koennen und nicht nach spanischen Worten gruebeln zu muessen.
Ich konnte leider nicht viel mit ihnen unternehmen, weil ich die ganze Zeit im Cafe verbrachte.
Diese zwei Schweizer waren extrem nett, am ende bekamm ich deren Taschenlampe geschenkt. Ich hoffe die wurde nicht später benötigt…

28 14.8.09 Michael mike-on-bike Valerie, so, gibt Flugblätter aus und irgendwie erkennt er, dass das logo etwas mit Fahrräder zu tun hat. Er kommt rein und erzählt, dass er in El Alto untergebracht ist und er solange in La Paz bleibt bis sein Hautproblem auskuriert hat. Das Thema kommt immer wieder und erzählt jeden ohne Vorwarnung. Und dann kommt das Thema mit seinem Haus, das er nicht vermieten kann… Ufff. 0
29-30 14.8.09- 24.8.09 Goat and Sean ridingthespine Arrived on the afternoon with their special bikes and i send them home.

I lend her a bycicle and a map… so they might be on the way back if nothing happened. else.. search?? They took their time on the road and come very late that evening.
